I love the pictures that are painted in the New Testament of the apostles going to the town square and defending their faith. This is inspiring to me as I seek to know, learn, understand and grow in my faith. I want to be prepared to answer questions when they come my way.

One of my core convictions is that I don’t want to simply proclaim what I believe, I want to share why I believe with anyone who might ask. It is in these moments of defining and defending my faith that I find more confidence, resolve and assurance that God is alive and living in me.

Where is your town square? Where is the courtyard of your faith? Where are you challenged to defend and define your thoughts? Where are questions being tossed your way to see what you believe and why you believe?
